Welcome to the first news update inputted myself – how brave is that? Thanks to Debbie Young for setting up my fab website! Well, my Author Talk at The Bath Priory on Thursday 28th February 2013 was really well received. A friendly gathering of 40+ ladies and one man (yes, I did give him some stick!) who laughed in all the right places! My talk was an elongated 45 minute version of my speech from my launch with a bit more information about how one goes about getting a book into print plus a few excerpts of my writing. I then enjoyed a delicious lunch before signing a few books and then dragging chef Sam Moody out of the kitchen to pose for a photo. To top it all, I took a booking for another talk whilst I was there with a second to be confirmed. On that note, if any of you belong to or have any contacts with groups who would be interested in my author talk, please let me know.
I would like to thank everyone who came Wow! thank you to everyone who came to my launch – approximately 180 people came out on a cold January night to support me – I was just overwhelmed!!
I sold a staggering 100+ books and you also generously gave £175 in donations which exceeded all my expectations! The man at Waterstones said it was the most well attended local author launch I have seen in 25 years as a bookseller in Bath”. So thank you! The lucky winner of the meal for two at the Bath Priory was Alan Didymus – a worthy winner and great timing with his 25th Wedding Anniversary coming up!
Here are a few pictures.
